Fields of Grace Seeks a new Director
After serving for two years as program coordinator, Luke Hallowell has decided to step away from Fields of Grace. Luke is leaving the position to join the Downtown Pasco Development Authority. Additionally, current Executive Director John Neill will be leaving that post and taking on a new role as a director on the board.
Our board of directors and coordinator team are committed to finding a way forward for Fields of Grace during this transition period to ensure that Fields of Grace will continue to help meet the need for fresh produce in our local food banks. To that end, Luke (and John) will remain engaged with Fields of Grace in a limited fashion to as we seek a replacement.
Thanks for your support at Sowing Seeds for the Harvest!
Thanks to many of you and the generous support of our sponsors below, we were able to raise over $22,000 for gleaning in 2016!
Fields of Grace was established in April 2006 as a ministry at West Side Church in Richland, WA. The program began when 2nd Harvest Tri-Cities voiced a need for fresh produce for area food banks and area farmers wanted to donate a portion of their crops, but lacked the resources to pick the additional produce.
We provide the hands of service that pick the fruits and vegetables for residents in need. Since its inception, the ministry has trained over 1,000 volunteers who have logged over 14,000 hours of service to harvest nearly 1,700,000 pounds of produce. This produce has included apples, sweet corn, carrots, sweet cherries, apricots, plums, grapes, prunes, tomatoes, potatoes, among other fruits and vegetables. In total, Fields of Grace has provided nearly 4.7 million individual servings of healthy fruits and vegetables.
